We launched Sussex Lund in 2016 to support small-scale, practical projects that improve the ecology and landscape of the High Weald in Sussex. An exceptional medieval landscape, with a wealth of wildlife and historic features, the High Weald is recognized as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Sussex Lund is open for applications from organisations, groups and individuals with projects that make practical and tangible green improvements to the High Weald, and can inspire wider change.

Grants range between £500 and £10,000. Decisions on funding are made annually by the Sussex Lund panel. Since 2016, Sussex Lund has awarded £1.2m to over 190 projects.

For information on past grants and on how to apply for a grant, please visit the High Weald AONB website. Search past and current projects in the map below, or read the latest updates in the programme’s Autumn 2019 newsletter.
